It is our vision that every route and every mode should be available to everybody, free from the risk or fear from harm. Achieving that vision means following an evidence led path of interventions that are, in the main, designed to treat road risk at its source.
Detailed collision/casualty statistics
Our Road Safety Statistics Annual Report, mainly using Police road accident data from 2016 and comparing with preceding years, demonstrates that our focus needs to be on improving the skills, knowledge and safer behaviours of select groups of road user. Younger and less experienced drivers; older drivers; motorcyclists and higher exposure drivers – commonly characterised as at-work drivers – will therefore be targeted for support.
